In 1926, A-1 Lock and Safe began in San Diego and was one of the very first locksmith shops to serve the San Diego and outlying areas. Around 1996, A-1 Lock and Safe opened our second shop in Carlsbad to service the security needs of those living and working in the coastal community. As the security industry grew dramatically, we diversified and specialized in the automotive, residential and commercial aspects of locksmithing.
From a simple job like copying your house key to equipping your home or business with a large safe or mailbox installation, we strive to offer the best quality service to you. We have been providing physical security to motorists, homeowners and business owners for over 90 years.
Because our locksmith company is located in the city of Carlsbad, we are able to offer extremely quick service to Encinitas, Cardiff, San Marcos, Vista, Oceanside, La Costa, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. We cover all other areas of the county and also service Southern Orange County and Riverside Counties too. We know your time is valuable!

You are invited to visit our spectacular Security Center in Carlsbad conveniently located right off the I-5 freeway!

You may notice that when doing a search for a locksmith located in Carlsbad, there are many, many locksmith companies that pop-up stating that they are located in Carlsbad. Do not let them fool you! Most of them use fictitious addresses to make it look like they are located in Carlsbad or Encinitas, but they are not! Their “company” or answering service is located in other states or countries who outsource the business for a commission to local unskilled "locksmiths". With that many hands in the pot, you’re sure to be overcharged. Would you trust a locksmith company who resorts to using fake addresses with making keys to your home or business? Going right to the source, we are proud to offer the highest quality and the lowest price possible.
We are most certainly located in Carlsbad and are freeway close! Just feet from the I-5 Freeway at Palomar Airport Road.
We have testified as an expert witness at numerous insurance and law enforcement cases as a forensic / investigative locksmith /security expert. Feel free to contact us for more information regarding this service.
